Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we graded this facility very poorly overall, it received a somewhat respectable nursing rating this year. We gave it a B- in this area. Our nursing score analyzes the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. With 4.5 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this nursing home surpassed the national average. We also look at the skill levels of nurses and apply more weight to hours worked by skilled nurses. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these statistics as predictive indicators of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's next most respectable category is short-term care, but it still earned a grade of just D in that area. This is still a well below average grade. In calculating our short-term care grades, we scrutinize a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is considered to be a solid assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 43.9 percent of its patients returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home ended up receiving a a very poor score in our long-term care category. It was given a lowly F in this category. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes provide. Even though we determined this nursing home had an impressive amount of nursing hours provided by nurses and other nursing staff, we found its vaccine statistics to be a bit below average. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 65.454544 percent of its patients. This is one figure we would love to see this facility improve. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on the last category of inspections, this facility had an abysmal showing. It received an F in our inspection rating. For nursing homes with poor inspection scores, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. Tragically, this place was hit with one category L deficiency. This type of deficiency indicates multiple widespread threats to patient safety or health. A deficiency in this category is very damaging to a facility's inspection score. Another red flag is that CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
